B proper comparison. "that" = protein in B



OA is B. However, I think the answer should be be rice has protein of higher quality than wheat has, which is not in the option.. Can you please explain how you are able to zero in on this answer?

B for me.

Correct comparison should have sentence starting with "rice" and not rice protein.

between B and E, E makes wrong comparison, comparison should be made between the proteins in wheat and rice.
